U.S. still opposed to military action in Syria
Shocking as it was, the massacre of more than 100 Syrian villagers is unlikely to galvanize a military assault like last year's campaign in Libya to oust Moammar Gadhafi.

NO ONE is going to intervene and fight on the same side as those AlQaeda terrorists, and no one is going to fight these rebel's revolution for them.

Special envoy Kofi Annan said Monday he was horrified by a gruesome weekend massacre that killed more than 100 people in Syria, and called on "every individual with a gun" to lay down arms and stop the killing.
Annan arrived in Damascus Monday for talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad and other senior officials.
"I have come to Syria at a critical moment in this crisis," Annan said as he arrived in Damascus on Monday. "I am personally shocked and horrified by the tragic incident in Houla."
He called on all sides of the conflict to end the bloodshed.
"This message of peace is ... for everyone, for every individual with a gun," he said.
The mass killings Friday in Houla, a collection of villages in the central province of Homs, prompted sweeping international criticism of the Syrian regime, although differences emerged from world powers over whether his forces were exclusively to blame.
Syrian troops shelled several neighborhoods in Hama until the early hours of Monday, killing at least 24 people, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees activist group said. Amateur videos showed a makeshift hospital where several people lay on the floor either dead or wounded. Further details were not immediately clear.
The violence comes at a time of deep concern over the conflict in Syria. The Houla massacre was one of the deadliest single days of the country's uprising, which is in its 15th month.

Obama's Press Secretary is daily threatened by a sheep stampede from the American White House press herd, which apparently believes that all of Syria's troubles are embodied by and emanate from one person - President Asad. The current position of the US administration seems to be,'If the Syrian government does not commit suicide soon, then we will have to kill it'.
I recall that shortly before his murder Martin Luther King Jr. received an anonymous message to the same effect from J. Edgar Hoover.
